Review of Dr Tom Riddingtons article in the Guardian.
« on: April 04, 2013, 06:16:10 PM »

On Wednesday 3rd April, Dr Tom Riddington published an article in the Guardian newspaper about e-cigs.

The original article can be seen here  -  http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2013/apr/03/e-cigarette-smokers-inhaling-unknown


So, I decided to do a 'Review' of his article.

My review can be found here  -  http://ecignews.blogspot.co.uk/2013/04/dr-tom-riddington-published-article.html

a mere brief glance and it appears junk science and selective information can work in either direction ...

"Watch out, e-cigarette smokers - you're inhaling the unknown" ... a highly regarded and long standing e-cig advocate made a similar claim too very recently.

"Not only are these products not tested and regulated like proper medicines - they are being targeted at the young" ... both of these points seem so very obviously true ... indeed moves are afoot by all major players, not least pro-ecig campaigners, for their individually tailored regulations ...

furthermore, we have this to highlight how role models for the young, are specifically targeted ... i don't recall any call to arms during the time whilst these candy flavoured pretty coloured sticks were offered out.

are e-cigs helping people to quit ... i have to concede, yes they undeniably are.

others have felt the same benefit too and at times seemingly used it readily in their marketing strategies.
